Pope Francis in Brazil

Since the Argentine Jorge Mario Bergoglio assumed the leadership of the Catholic church, it is possible to notice a constant search for simplicity and transparency. The pope is very close to the faithful, dispenses with the use of pomp and admits his imperfections.

THE visit of Pope Francis to Brazil aims to break down barriers and make direct contact with the faithful. It also conveys a message of renewal to Catholics.

Pope Francis’ schedule in Brazil is quite varied and has added to Benedict XVI’s original schedule. The religious leader hopes to visit the National Sanctuary of Our Lady of Aparecida, the Hospital São Francisco de Assis, Favela Varginha, among other places.

Pope Francis is staying in a church house at the top of Morro do Sumaré, in the North Zone of Rio de Janeiro. The mansion preserves the colonial architecture, has an internal garden, seven bedrooms and a private chapel. The same place was responsible for accommodating Pope John Paul II, who visited Brazil in 1980 and 1997.

Francis chose the most modest suite of the mansion for your stay. The room is 45 square meters and is similar to the cardinals’ dormitories.
